Since Mark tripped over some wires and left the whole world without Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, the idea of having your own place to post photos isn’t too bad. That’s why this article is all about my very recent Rome trip and the only lens I used in the photos you’re about to see.
I’m not going to waste your time with too many words. This little combo is great for street shooting. It weighs under 500 grams and if you put it in Aperture Priority Mode at f/8, all you have to worry about is composition.
I’ll add a description for each photo. Enjoy!
My findings about the lens
- Sharpness is not something to write about. As far as I know, most pancake lenses have this trait;
- CA (Chromatic Aberration) and LoCA (Longitudinal Chromatic Aberration) are well controlled. I noticed them, but it’s nothing I can’t fix in Lightroom;
- Flaring can be an issue. I didn’t have the lens hood with me, as it doubles the length of the lens;
- Autofocus is ok;
- It’s light, compact and the focus ring turns smoothly.
I didn’t buy the Sony E 20mm f/2.8 expecting to get stellar image quality. What I wanted was the street shooting experience so many Sony users wish for. And that’s what I got.
